I explained to a friend last week the problem with internalizing too much, by internalizing I mean being with yourself and your thoughts.
It’s inevitable that you will make things up in your mind and get so caught up in your fairytale image that reality slips through your fingers.
But you have to be realistic and externalizing helps you to ‘stay real’, this is why we are surrounded by people that we can talk too and share things with, people who love us and will bring us back to reality.
Although we have a gut that directs us, at our weakest moments, it’s easy to get confused and lost and to make the wrong decisions but we are lucky, we are saved from this by being here in the physical world.
Be grateful for the people who enter your life, your friends and your family!
